1200 — I miss this car so much, it was a sporty lil rear wheel drive that could drift a corner like everybody loves to. The v6 was decent on gas and really the only reason it was a bad car was the age.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Rear Wheel drive

Cons: old age

Great For Street Raceing — Id say it would pegg the speedometer at less than a half a mile. the button overide for firm and automatic is great on sharpe curves, doesnt lean a bit. Its a smooth ride!! I put a computer chip for more gas millage and it gets about 25mpg.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: great performance

Cons: could use different motors for the windows and winshield wipers.

Mercury Cougar Xr7 — Mercury Cougar XR7 Supercharged - fun to drive, great performance though the one i had was a project and the looks weren't too killer. Anyway, she was fun to drive and if you want a car with good mileage, comfort and performance, find one of these in a good shape. Just don't get caught speeding, easily done with these. (If you like a sportier design, go with the Ford T-bird, same thing)

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Good Car As Well — maybe later,but this car is a bit better than the thunderbird , compared to in ride, smoother and softer, so with this car is like a Gran tourer, but nore the steady as she goes and not the, let's see how well it will handle in the corners at high speed, mostly everthing the same expect the XR7 and the SC , more of just the same with these two car, thn the lx and cougar, both have the same chassie and suspension engines brakes and transmissions, just the difference is the name and some minor interior style, other then the difference on the outside, they are much the same car, just one is preped for the sport and the other for the cruiser, both will do long distances with out a major problem, and both get about the same miliage, power, comfort..............it just all comes down to how you wanna drive, smooth and comfort, or stout and ready. either way you can't lose......but cost in the long run will be high upon the car treatment.

Pros: Ride good, a bit smoother that the sister car

Cons: still the same with cost to run and fix
